Accessibility

The Austin Theatre Alliance is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment and equitable access to all educational programming for students of all abilities. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at summercamps@austintheatre.org.


Attendance/Make-up Policy

Paramount Education does not guarantee that camps cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control (i.e., weather, power outage) will be made up; no refunds will be issued. We do not offer make-up days due to a child’s inability to attend. In rare instances, camps may be cancelled 2-weeks prior to the start of camp due to low enrollment. A full refund will be issued in these cases. We ask that you please communicate any planned absences to the Camp Administrator on the first day of camp. This will help us to create a productive camp rehearsal schedule.


Cancellation/Refunds

Any cancellation request must be made in writing at least 2 weeks before your scheduled session begins to receive a full refund. Cancellation requests made less than 2 weeks before the start of the camp session will not be refunded. If your camp session is cancelled due to low enrollment, your tuition will be fully refunded.


Payment Plans

Arrangements can be made between Paramount Education and parents/guardians to split the cost of camps into a payment plan. Requests for payment plans must be received by March 1st. To make arrangements, please write to summercamps@austintheatre.org and include “payment plan” in the subject line.


Photo Release

Paramount Education reserves the right to use photos and videos taken during camps and performances for promotional (via print or the web) and archival purposes only. In an effort to keep our young performances safe and to maintain focus, the taking of photographs, videotaping, and the use of recording devices is not permitted during camp performances. All performances are videotaped and photographed by the Paramount Education. Digital copies of camp performances are available for sale during registration and performance photographs will be shared with camp families after the camp concludes.


Scholarships

Limited scholarships for camps are available and awarded on a case by case basis. If you are interested in receiving a scholarship, please complete the application at www.austintheatre.org/scholarships. Requests for scholarships must be received by April 1st in order to be considered. Scholarships are awarded on a rolling basis. After April 1st scholarships will be awarded based on availability of funds.


Zero Tolerance

In order to provide students with a safe and supportive environment, Paramount Education maintains a strict “Zero Tolerance” policy in regard to physical or verbal abuse, theft, vandalism, and the use of any and all illegal substances. Any student found in violation of this policy will be asked to leave the camp and no refunds will be issued.
